and hello Spring!
In my side of the Earth’s corner, Spring is just beginning to blossom. Days are longer thanks to time management, I see more sun and everything is becoming greener and more colorful. I too am beginning to wake up from what seemed like creative hibernation and this weekend I experienced such a lovely surge of creativity that I really just don’t want it to end :)
I have this idea for very special needle felted “dolls” that has re-emerged so I am thinking it is important and I definitely need to go on with it.
I am also itching to dive into my learning of Procreate because I treated myself with some brush sets by amazing Lisa Glanz that are soooo amazing and joyful to use, that I really can’t say enough good words about them. I am totally holding myself back with them as I really want to get to know each set before I move onto the other and for a change, I also want to go through all her tutorials that came along with the brushes. She certainly draws very cute and whimsical characters.
Here’s a bunny from a “get to know the brushes” in Nitty Gritty set. I changed the bunny to be more “mine” and he definitely reminds me of a needle felted bunny from a few years ago. Next tutorial deals with a very cute bear so you’ll have to bear with me till I draw him and share him here as well ;)
Week 13 image for Nini’s Weekly Creative Boost looked like this:
and I was playing with it this weekend - will I ever tackle it sooner? :D
It amazes me what comes up from these splashes or lines and how good it is to use my colored pencils. I always loved using them but I also love using watercolors which oddly, don’t make it onto these drawings much. I do want to try out watercolor/gouache combination on one of these so I know it in my bones it’s just a matter of time till I do so :D
Here’s what came up for me, and I’d love to see what others would come up so please, if you have a friend that you know would like to play with these images, send them my way. You come too of course, everyone is more than welcome. ♥
There is another thing that has been going on for a while but I’ll leave it for the next post because I need to set up a few more things. All I can say is, it has a lot to do with ATC cards. And that it is very very cool :) Even if I say so myself lol.
Soooo, I am wishing you a very lovely and absolutely magical week and I’ll see you in the next post! If not sooner ;)
With much love,
